Our curriculum is organized around the same Washington State Essential
Learning Requirements as public schools, but the traditional subjects are
integrated with art, music, drama and outdoor education to keep learning
exciting and meaningful. Teachers balance hands-on activities with work
periods requiring quiet attention. Students who have moved from Five
Acre to the public system have been very successful.
At Five Acre, we truly practice individualized learning. In each subject
area the students work at their appropriate skill level. Children who learn
more slowly continue to see themselves as successful students and with
time reach high levels of achievement. Fast learners can blossom at their natural pace without having to wait for others to catch up. For many
activities, students from all levels work together, pooling their special
talents to create marvelous results.
